Be very careful who you marry.
The Duke of Glenartair wasn't careful enough and found himself plagued by a duchess who simply wouldn't go away. She was a beauty, he had to give her that, and many other men thought so too. Unfortunately, she only saw men as a means to gain wealth. Yet, the duchess wanted more; she wanted to remain just that - a duchess.
A Duke by inheritance, Hannish MacGreagor soon learned the title came with very little wealth, so he bought a silver mine in Idaho, left his wife of two weeks in Scotland, and sailed to America. Two years later, he sold the mine and became one of the wealthiest men in Colorado. Convinced his wife would be happy there, he built Marblestone Mansion on a bluff overlooking Colorado Springs, where many a wealthy gold mine owner and their families lived. His hopes were high when he sent for his wife, yet there were signs that all was not well with his marriage. Never could he have imagined the disaster that was headed his way.
Jilted by a man who professed to love her and then married another, McKenna MacGreagor fled to Colorado’s Marblestone Mansion hoping to heal her broken heart. Six months later, she still couldn’t stop thinking about him.
Once a prominent duchess in London high society, Alexandra Sinclair, a.k.a. Olivia MacGreagor, found herself in a London house of detention. She was charged with bigamy and theft, and faced five years in a dreadful prison. Could the solicitor her new love hired get the charges dropped, and if so, was she headed back to Colorado?
Cameron MacGreagor’s wife, Flora, passed peacefully in her sleep, taking their unborn child with her. Consumed with grief, he didn’t think he would ever recover, but a child in need of a family changed all that. There was only one problem; she was the daughter of the last person the MacGreagors ever wanted to see again.
Jedediah Tanner became a thief at the early age of twelve. By the time he was twenty-six, he decided to give up his life of crime, find an honest wife and settle down. Little did he know, the remarkably beautiful woman he would fall madly in love with had a few priors of her own.
This time, the duchess had gotten herself into more trouble than ever before. Without friends or a husband to rely on, she found circumstances to be completely out of her control. Yet there was something she could do - an ace in the hole she'd nearly forgotten about. It was sure to work. Moreover, it might be a way to gain the fortune she needed to live out the rest of her life in luxury.
This time, nothing could go wrong.
Sooner or later, there is a price to pay for bigamy, and the Duchess was about to learn just how dangerous and expensive that price could be.
Spring brought the fulfillment of Hannish MacGreagor’s promise to take his family to Scotland, and no one was more thrilled than sisters, Leesil and Cathleen. Yet, on the voyage, they encountered a woman who would make their lives far more complicated – a woman who was happy to spread gossip, and who was determined to find out what became of the duchess.
Early one August morning, Miss Patella Green was found dead in her bed. The child she claimed Douglas Swinton fathered was yet unborn, and more than one in Colorado Springs thought he had something to do with her death. After all, just a few days before she publicly accused him, he married someone else.
Desperate to return to what she thought was her rightful place in London Society, the ex-Duchess of Glenartair was willing to do anything Lady Husher asked of her. It was a simple request and a task she could carry out with ease, but then, nothing in her life ever went as planned.
